Pope Benedict got it right.

Incredible words from one of the Church’s great leaders. Please share.
The Chinese government boasts that the One-Child Policy has prevented over 400 million births, and announced in March 2013, that over the last four decades, they have aborted 336 million children, performed 196 million surgical sterilizations, and inserted 403 million IUD’s. The loss of life and imposition on the rights of mothers is staggering.
Another tragic consequence of the policy is China’s growing gender imbalance. Coupled with a traditional preference for males, the policy drives parents to kill their daughters through abortion, abandonment, or infanticide. This elimination of girls is called gendercide. Experts predict that by 2020, China will be home to 40 million more men than women under the age of 20. That number is equivalent to the total population of men under 20 in the U.S.
Abortion is the greatest human tragedy that has ever afflicted mankind. It has lessened our respect for life, for women, and for ourselves. It has killed more human beings than all of the wars, famines, genocides, and natural disasters in recorded history - combined.
Are you actively contributing to this human tragedy through your ‘pro-choice’ activism or are you passively contributing through your apathy and fear?
